Warstone Lane Cemetery

We’re exploring the Gothic side of the Jewellery Quarter with tour guide Ian Braisby, who’ll be leading a walking tour that takes in two Victorian Cemeteries (with tales of the cruel realities of life in 19th century Birmingham) plus some of the darker landmarks around the Jewellery Quarter – including sites of murder and execution.

Then it’s off to the Shakespeare Inn to warm up with a hot meal in a cosy Victorian Gin Parlour. We’ll finish the day by stepping back in time for a candlelit tour of the unique Coffin Works Museum – a time capsule which perfectly preserves the Newman Brothers coffin fittings factory, built in 1894.

Food and drink at the Shakespeare Inn are not included in the price of this ticket, but ticket holders will get 20% off their bill (including all hot and cold food options from the seasonal menu and the full range of alcoholic and soft drinks).

Please meet at the gates of Warstone Lane Cemetery on Vyse Street.

Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries Project


We had an amazing day yesterday at the @jqbid #jqfestival collaborating with @jo_gane1 @suslifeuk @dontgointothecellar and of course the @friendskeyhillwarstonelanecem meeting so many amazing people

We couldn't have done it without everyone's help, including loads of support behind the scenes from @bhamcitycouncil @coffin_works @thehivejq and all the amazing #JQHeritageSquad volunteers.

Now we need to sleep for a week but then we'll be buzzing with ideas for 2023!

This project is possible because of funding from:
